Interview: The Melvins

Interview: The Melvins

Friday 11th February, 2011 11:06AM

The Melvins will have seen everything in their career. The rise of alternative music in the mainstream press; grunge (they hung out in Aberdeen, Washington Kurt Cobain once auditioned for the band too, but failed to make it in when he forgot all the songs from nerves though the Melvins' Dale Crover played the drums on Nirvana's Bleach); the major labels buying into counterculture for a while (the Melvins released some of their most well-known stuff on Atlantic Houdini, Stoner Witch and Stag) but then being dumped; releasing dozens of albums in a variety of ways; and having the type of influence on a multitude of influential bands around the world that most musicians can only dream of. I talk to Dale Crover before a five-date tour with High on Fire around the country.
